The tiny state of Rhode Island has many claims to fame: it’s practically a co-star in every Farrelly Brothers movie; the original Great Gatsby was filmed there; and Quahog, the fictional town in Family Guy, is in RI.

But perhaps the Ocean State’s biggest claim to fame these days is being the home state of one Mr. Paul DelVecchio, who we know is getting his very own Jersey Shore spin-off show on MTV.

Previously we reported that most of the filming is being done in Las Vegas, due to his prominent role as the Palms Casino & Resort’s resident DJ. But the show won’t be all flash and strobe lights. The Providence Journal is reporting that “some scenes have been filmed in Rhode Island.”

So what exactly will be revealed about Pauly D.’s original stomping grounds? Will we see a childhood ex-girlfriend, the one that got away? We all remember his ex, Gina, who showed up at Karma during Season 3 and got hit on by Sitch (violating the “guy code”). Will we hear the history of their love story? Fist-pump if you think so!
